Tech talk: The Reference CD9 incorporates four digital inputs: Asynchronous USB 2.0HS, AES/EBU, RCA, and Toslink. All inputs handle 24 bit / 192k resolution. As you would expect, the Reference CD9 retains the Philips PRO2R transport, still the best dedicated CD mechanism available. It is simply unsurpassed for compact disc playback. The REF CD9 utilizes quad 24-bit DACs running in mono mode, with dual master oscillators; one for 44.1/88.2/176.4 sample rates, the other for 48/96/192kHz sample rates. Sample rate conversion is selectable for all inputs, allowing playback in native resolution or via upsampling, including compact disc and USB input. Additionally, there is a selectable digital filter, with either fast or slow roll-off.  The analog section is vacuum-tube, with four 6H30 dual-triodes, and there is vacuum-tube power-supply regulation featuring a 6550WE with a 6H30. - **Note: these have been upgraded to Gold Edition Tubes** The front panel has a dimmable CD display on the left side. On the right side there are three vertical rows of LEDs to indicate sampling rate, input selection, filter and power.  In addition to the digital inputs, the back panel includes Digital Outputs (AES/EBU and BNC), single-ended RCA and balanced XLR outputs, and a 15A IEC power connector.

      Posted to reasonable locations in Australia via Australia Post with registration and insurance.
      I don't have the original box but I will pack with bubble wrap and box.
      Also included is a 2.4Ghz mini USB WiFi and a HDMI 1.4 cable as shown in the photos.
       
      Note: This PC has no fans other than on the XFX RX 550 video card which could be removed and the onboard graphics used if one so chooses.
      The fan of the XFX RX 550 video card only comes on when needed so if you're just playing music this PC will be silent.
      Even when utilising the GPU for video or a game it will still be silent or least least ultra quiet.
      Using the Bluray Drive some noise is likely to be heard.

      Price: $1500 Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup is available Suburb or Town: Toowoomba State: Queensland Payment Method: Cash on pickup, Paypal Reason for selling: NLR Further information: 
      Bought these from Kelossus roughly 4 months ago.
      Devine sound, enjoyed them very much.
       
      Condition since collecting them 4 months ago has not changed. They have been sitting in my listening room covered with plastic bags as the cats
      would love to have a go on them. 
       
      Listened to them roughly 5 times - speakers are in near new condition. 
      RRP for these is roughly 5K - at 1500 dollars I think these are extremely reasonably priced.
       
      Will not ship these - happy to assist with delivery to Brisbane, Sun and Gold Coast.

      Price: $100 Item Condition: Used, so 8/10 Shipping Options: Pickup is available,I can ship this item Suburb or Town: Parafield Gardens State: South Australia Payment Method: Cash or Paypal. Reason for selling: Ares II and D10 DACs Further information: Prefer to Audition (utmost care taken) for a local sale, but I can post at buyer's expense. I think this DAC is well enough known to be a great DAC for the price new and an absolute bargain at this price point.
      I am willing to consider swapping with just about anything audio related in the price range with financial adjustments either way.
      This is the non USB version, and does not come with a power supply.
